with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
years being the obama administration, have been "buried." >> first of all, wolf, the romney campaign really has nothing to say in 24 hours. this is paul ryan who on fox news on sunday couldn't explain the romney/ryan tax plan. not because it's complicated, because the math don't add up. and for the middle class it hurts the middle class. it digs the middle class into the dead years of 2000 to 2010. >> how problemmatic? >> the republicans have nothing but gaffes. they love when joe biden speaks because for some reason they like to take those comments and blow them out of proportion flt i just think it's nonsense. if they want to talk about joe biden and who will help the middle class, that's an argument i think the democrats would like to have. >> there will be a lot of discussion of joe biden's remarks right now. >> donna's right. we like to talk about joe biden because he gives us a lot to talk about. in a few weeks we'd miss joe biden, the gift that keeps on giving. only in washington is a truth called a gaffe when it's not politically convenient. what he said right now is the trut
sanchez was part of history four years ago, urging latinos to help make barack obama president. it's different this time around. harder. >> some people are still very excited and others say, i don't know. well, i haven't made up my mind. >> reporter: less hype about the obama campaign this time, she says, and less hope about the candidate. >> it's a little bit harder because sometimes some of them say, well, i don't know who to vote for, these two evils. >> reporter: latinos were 13% of the vote in battleground colorado four years ago. and any dip in their support for the president or a drop in turnout could shift this classic swing state. >> this is one of his songs that's so moving and so powerful. >> reporter: evangelicals are to mitt romney what latinos are to barack obama. white evangelicals made up 23% of colorado's vote in 2008. >> think about life, think about liberty, think about character. and then cast your ballot. >> reporter: this pastor adds a plug to vote to every subd's sermon. >> the most surprising thing is the frustration of many of them with both candidates and
was growing, producing 200,000 jobs a year, it looked like the economy might be enough to lift obama to a safe level, then the big spring slow down, and now i think we're getting numbs, whether it's growth or jobs that are really neither, that point you again to a close race. it's been a modest up tick in economic optimism. but i think these kind of numbers reinforce the sense we have in the race itself that you don't have a decisive wind blowing in either direction at this point. >> voters are already beginning to feel a little more optimistic. we see that in the polls. this will add to a sense of optimism and that's good for the president. >> i think a little more but not vastly more. it's not a strong tail wind but it's better than a head wind. >> let me play a couple of clips. i want to discuss what he's saying. listen to this. >> what's happened is this has been the slowest recovery since the great depression. as a matter of fact, he said right now we would be at 5.4% unemployment. instead, we're at 8.1%. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president, i will
's been selling for the last year. >> president obama at that rally in denver earlier today. very, very different from what we saw in the debate last night. watch this. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. >> all right. moments like that may have contributed to what so many people out there see as the president's debate loss. our cnn/orc poll of viewers, people who actually watched the debate, finds that 67% think mitt romney was the clear winner while only 25% think president obama won. let's get some more now from our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, how damaging was this debate to president obama last night? >> i think we have to let the polls come in. and we'll let the voters decide. but i think you saw from the way the president was behaving on the stump this morning that even he knows that this was a pretty damaging debate for him. look, mitt romney showed up as somebody who was reasonable, as somebody wh
for the wealthiest americans which is what president obama wanted those families making more than $250,000 a year, individuals making more than $200,000 a year, what would the impact of that be? >> well, you know, that would hurt but that is something that the economy could digest because the -- total hit would be much smaller. of course, you are hitting higher income households who have other saving, other financial resources. they wouldn't pull back on their spending to the same degree. association you know, all else being equal it would be -- a negative to the economy in the very near term but it is something the economy could digest and -- ultimately longer run we need to address our fiscal situation. that is, we need government spending cuts and we need additional tax revenue. both of those things to address our fiscal problems. one way or the other we are going to need additional tax revenue and 2 most likely place to get additional tax revenue is from higher income households. >> $1.3 trillion deficit you definitely need something to bring that deficit down. bring the national debt down at
't anywhere we want it to be. >> no. president -- candidate barack obama promised four years ago, no. but is it better than where we've been for 40 months, yes, as an american i'm celebrating. >> if you're running for office, you want to be on the uptick. you don't want to be going the other way. as long as it's going in the right direction, people are feeling better about themselves. this is good news for obama. and it's good news for america. >> just look at the narrative. wednesday night liberals and democrats were apocalyptic. and today friday these job numbers come out and then you have romney driving the day from what he said last night on fox news repudiating the 47%. and president obama giving two big speeches today, rallies, and he's bouncing up on stage and he's got all kinds of new lines and so on. >> but you guys, you know, as fools gold, you act like one debate is going to change the fundamental dynamics of this race. they were pretty set in beforehand and seldom if ever in history one debate is going to change the fundamental dynamics of a race. >> one may not, but two
